Southern Gospel Blogs 


A growing number of people – including artists and other insiders – are launching blogs dedicated to Southern Gospel. And, such is the spreading popularity of the blogosphere, it’s possibly only a matter of time before these blogs start to have an impact on the industry.

Below are those blogs I know of. I’ll happily add others that are brought to my attention. At the bottom are links to Southern Gospel message boards.
